The current body of work is an exploration of paintings that change based on who is looking and responding to them as well as who is manipulating and reconstructing them. In this way I invite the viewer to be an active participant in the painting’s creation. The painting becomes time based and ephemeral in this context.
The act of moving various pieces together by folding, turning, bending to construct new work and the 3-dimensional quality formed by the paper invites the viewer to reconfigure the painting and have a phenomenological experience with the work. This act of movement and orchestration becomes part of the piece.
